Another cost reduction factor

Postby Too Many Pills!! » Tue Nov 28, 2006 4:20 am

Me again...yes, I'm a nightowl but I'm getting tired and will soon stop bombarding you with posts :oops:

Another tip from personal experience that's saving me a lot of money: Allegra D is a prescription allergy medication in the US but in Canada its Over the Counter. OTC meds aren't always cheaper than when they required a prescription but many times the price does drop. In my case I now get 90 Allegra D 12 hour caplets for $48 (plus $10 shipping) from Canada while the best US price I can find for the same quantity of the exact same drug is $134. They are still the same strength and produced by the same pharmaceutical company. I don't know what other drugs fall into this category but I'm sure there must be more.

The source I found had the best price on Allegra D (quoted above) is a site called I've ordered from them multiple times and have never had a problem.

Of course the same qualifications that were in my last post still apply here:

"There can be risks in ordering meds through the mail whether its from another country, through online auctions or even from US mail order pharmacies. But similar risks can apply even at your local retail pharmacy.

Yes, the US government still frowns on importing prescription medications, primarily for what they tell us are "safety" reasons. Yet some large cities and more and more states are now contracting to have all medications for the programs they administer imported from Canada."

Best advice I can offer is to thoroughly research your source and always be aware of exactly what medication (and strength) you're supposed to be taking.
